Braemar Finance helps Smilesite through Covid-difficulties with CBILS loan

Braemar Finance has worked closely with a long-time dental client – Smilesite - helping them weather the Covid-19 disruption with a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) loan. The funds will be allocated towards a range of overheads, including personal protective equipment (PPE) and working capital.

Established in 1990, Smilesite is a leading private dental care surgery based in Preston, providing all aspects of modern dentistry, including implants, facial aesthetics and tooth whitening.

Ed Dhenin, Area Sales Manager for Braemar Finance: “Our relationship with Mr Costa, the owner of Smilesite, goes back a long way. We helped him with the purchase of the practice and have since funded high-spec digital equipment.

“This is not an easy time for any business and this is another example of how we are determined to support our clients through all economic cycles, and I’m confident we’ll continue our relationship well into the future.”

Joao Costa, owner, Smilesite Dental Practice: “I’m really pleased with the assistance Braemar Finance has been able to provide – it gives me a lot of hope going forward and I’m now able to start thinking more firmly about the future in terms of where I want to take the business.”
